PD:
Zorro Rides Again
Winners of the West
Flaming Frontiers
The Clutching Hand
SOS Coast Guard (Serial OK but feature length version renewed R462321)
The Three Musketeers
The Hurricanne Express
Shadow of the Eagle

Copyright:
Riders of Death Valley R254120 (1960). This one is a bit strange. It is widely available from PD distributers. The renewal date is 1960, only 19 years after release. I haven't seen any prints, but I wonder if the copyright notices were predated and Universal timely renewed for the date in notice. PD distributors would of course be looking for 1969/70 renewals in their searches and, as such would not find a renewal.

According to US Copyrights that Riders of Death Valley R254120 (1960), could only be renewed on 27/28 year. A very narrow window. I could not find anything to support early copyright renewals. therefore the PD companies are correct with the release of this film. In other words, Universal has no support for a timely copyright renewal, i.e. 27/28 yrs from date. Unless you know of any support for copyright early copright renewal.

Just thought you'd want to know, the 144mb MPEG4 of Chapter 6 of Zorro Rides Again seems to be messed up. I've downloaded it twice and it seems to quit right around the 13:00 minute mark.

I checked chapter 6 and it should be 171.46 Megs, so it looks like it was cut off near the end of the upload process. I'll try to re-upload it tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.

Thank you so much Video-Cellar! Hopefully we can see these on IA soon. I have just started watching some old serials and loving them! The plots are just as exciting, if not even more, than today's films.
